First Baptist Wylie Hall of Honor Profile - Coach R.C. Dodd

R. C. Dodd was born in Martins Mill, in Van Zandt County, Texas on December 28, 1924.   He married Geline Beard on July 5, 1950 in Jacksonville, Texas.  Both attended Henderson County Junior College and East Texas State Teacher's College.  While attending Henderson Jr. College he made All American in basketball as a player. 

Coach Dodd and Geline came to Wylie in 1953 where he was hired as a coach.  He coached everything:  baseball, basketball and football.  In football, he regarded his best year as 1957 when the Class B Pirates, "outran and outbeat" the Class AA Plano Wildcats.   His true sport love was his basketball career.  He knew the game inside and out.  His record was very impressive in both boys and girls varsity games under his leadership.  Twenty-one District Championships were awarded his teams in seventeen years.  Girls varsity teams had 510 wins and 110 losses.  His boys teams  had 410 wins and 143 losses.   Overall, his teams won 1022 games, some of which were in Livingston before coming to Wylie. 

Coach Dodd retired from coaching in 1970, and served as Jr. High Principal from 1956 through 1976. He died from a heart attack in November of 1976.  Geline continued to teach until her retirement in 1998.

Coach Dodd was a Veteran of World War II.  He was very active in Civic affairs.  He was past president of the Wylie Lions Club and an active member of the Wylie Chamber of Commerce.  He and Geline were members and very active in the Wylie Church of Christ.  In 1970 he was elected to the Wylie City Council and re-elected in 1972 and 1974.  In April 1976 he became Wylie's mayor without opposition.  On November 13th of that year he passed away.  Services were held at the R. C. Dodd gymnasium of the Wylie Middle School.   An overflow crowd attended.  Burial was at Frankston, Texas.  He and Geline played a special part in the lives of their ex-students.  Their kindness, generosity, caring and fairness excelled that of most disciplinarians.

Dodd elementary School is named in his honor.

First Baptist Wylie Hall of Honor Profile - Kenneth Nall

 

 

 

 

    

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kenneth Nall, a respected community leader and lifelong Pirate fan, was inducted into the Wylie Sports Hall of Honor in 2009. Nall graduated in the Wylie High School class of 1963 with letters in Football and Basketball, which he played all four years.  He was Football Tri-captain; All-District Football as a senior; and All-District Basketball his sophomore and junior years. 

Being the quarterback of the team, Mr. Nall displayed strong leadership on the team, as he was known as a role model and team leader.   Many of the friendships formed during high school were lifelong relationships that he treasured throughout his years.

For 17 years, he worked as plant manager for Johnston Manufacturing in Wylie prior to purchasing The Wylie Hardware Store that he ran with his brother, Bobby, until he retired in 2003.  Known as a meeting place for Wylie’s finest, they would gather and discuss the weather, community and of course, Pirate Football.  A well respected leader in the community and very generous man, Mr. Nall, continually contributed to the community and Pirate football/sports.

K.C., as he was known by his friends, was one of the most avid Pirate fans.  In 1988, he was given an award for not missing a single Wylie football game in 25 years.  His wife, Mary Ann, said that he had not missed one game for over 35 years.  As his health began to deteriorate, he still attended all the home games.  He could always be found in Row R, Seat 23, of every home game. 

Married for 42 years, K.C. wed his high school sweetheart, Mary Ann Groves, (also a Hall of Honor inductee).   They have two daughters, Stacey Cobb (WHS ‘84) and Christi Keisler (WHS ‘88).  

“I think he would tell Pirates today to give their all, give 100% in your practices and games; respect your coaches; be proud to represent your school”, shared his wife.  For that was the man, Kenneth Nall was.
